Kolkata, Nov 26: The West Bengal Government on Thursday, Nov 26, said it would start the process of getting back the land from the Tatas in Singur if BHEL selects the site for setting up a mega power plant there.

Speaking to reporters, Industry Minister Nirupam Sen said, "I don't think there will be any problem to get back the land from the Tata Motors Ltd."

BHEL officials had inspected the site in Singur where the state government proposed to set up a 1600 MW mega power plant as a joint venture.

Railway minister Mamata Banerjee had said the Railways would set up a rail coach factory in the site jointly with the state government or under a PPP model.

But Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said the Railways had not sent any proposal to the state government for setting up a coach factory in Singur.
